Aftercare – Semi Permanent Eyebrows

Following our simple aftercare steps is vital towards ensuring maximum results and that the healing process goes as smoothly as possible. However, prior to this, there are also some pre-prep steps you can take to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition leading up to the appointment. ​




  • Do not consume any alcohol, coffee or caffeinated products from at least 24 hours before your appointment.

  • Do not take aspirin, any medication containing aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin or any vitamins that can thin the blood, unless absolutely medically necessary, from at least 48 hours before (Tylenol is acceptable)

  • Avoid sun tanning at least seven days prior to procedure, as this will enable us to get a more accurate representation of your true skin tone and adjust darkness.

  • Strictly no Botox, fillers, laser treatments and any other sort of chemical peels from at least two weeks before.


  • Do not pick, scratch, rub or peel the affected area when healing.

  • Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or any medication that can thin the blood such as aspirin, ibuprofen and niacin for up to 24 hours afterwards.

  • Avoid strenuous activity or working out for first day afterwards as this causes the pores to open up.

  • When showering, avoid having the shower head directly on the affected area and keep it away from shampoos and soaps whilst in the healing phase.

  • Do not apply makeup to the affected area for at least 10 days after.

  • Bepanthen cream or any equivalent can be used to speed up the healing process and keep the skin from drying out.

  • If swelling appears, you may apply a cold compress using a thin protective layer like cloth in between.

  • Ice packs are most effective within the first 24 hours of the procedure. ​​



  • Picking, rubbing, scratching and peeling the affected area before it is fully healed can adversely affect pigmentation and potentially cause scarring.

  • Minor scabbing is to be expected and is simply part of the healing process.

  • Alcohol and some medicine have blood-thinning properties that can disrupt the healing process which is why it is important to avoid these immediately before and after the procedure.

  • The colour may well appear darker and sharper at first. This is normal and the colour will soften and lighten to its intended shading as the area heals.

  • Exposure to direct sunlight and excessive heat when healing can cause pigmentation to fade and adversely affect the final results.

  • Semi-permanent cosmetics are a multi-step process and a touch up will be needed after 4-6 weeks before it can be ascertained that your work is complete.
